Performing a basic search by images
Click on the camera icon or in the dedicated box or drag and drop your image(s) (1 when searching within trade marks and up to 7 when searching within designs). Supported file formats are JPEG, PNG, GIF and TIFF extensions, larger than 100x100 pixels and with a maximum size of 2 Megabytes.
Once your image(s) is uploaded, you can:
- Click and adjust the rectangle to select the area of the image(s) to search.
- Change the image(s) you want to search by clicking on the bin icons or in ‘Change image(s)’
- Select if you want to search for trade marks, designs or both. When uploading 1 image you’ll have the possibility to search for both, if uploading more than one image the system will show results only for designs.
- Type the necessary characters in the search bar in case you want to do a combined search of an image along with trade mark name or design verbal elements.
Now click on the 'Search' button.
The 'images view' will be shown by default, but you can also choose the 'detail view' and the 'list view' to display the results and even select the number of items you want to visualize per page (from 5 to 100).
You can preview the details of each trade mark or design, check full information about, zoom in the images or generate reports. In the design results tab you can also browse through the different views available of the design by clicking on the arrows at the side of the image.
Generate reports: Select the trade marks or designs you want to include in your report by clicking in the tick box next to each image and click on 'Generate PDF'. The report with your selection will be created instantly. You also have a 'select all' option. This option will allow you to select a maximum of 100 trade marks to include in the report.
To obtain further information of a trade mark or a design, hover over the image and select ‘View full info’
